This place is the best seafood we ate in Hawaii! We tried a few of the top 10 on Trip Advisor, but they don't hold a candle to Uncle Bo's. This place is a must if you're in town. The Dynamite shrimp is just that,...More

This is for the haters in Tripadvisor. This place was a great choice. Server was quick and so nice. Drinks were great and food fantastic. Well worth the trip and half the price of other options.

Highly recommend leaving the strip at Waikiki for a meal here. Great food with a selection of seafood and meat dishes. The quality was great and the combination of flavours made it comparable if not better than any meal at the more costly restaurants. Price...More

Our hotel recommended Uncle Bo's, it was a bit of a walk, looked like a dive from the outside but the atmosphere once we were through the door was welcoming and worth the walk. It was busy so we ate at the bar and I...More

Wow what a great place 5-10 minute walk from the zoo. The food and service was awesome. There was 8 of us. We tried a few things. Pork sliders....amazing. Pesto fetacini sensational, fish taco and calamari also amazing, especially the sauce/soup which came with it....More

For the amount of food you get, this is a great value. We had the beet salad on a platter, not a plate. It could've easily fed four to six people as a starter. We also got the Kalua pig fried rice and the misoyaki...More

We made one and glad we did. It was very busy. Don't think we would've gotten in without one.

Street right next to restaurant. We did go early (6:30) so I don't know the availability later in the evening

I didn't notice loud music. They have 2 separate dining areas. The area in the back of the restaurant seemed more secluded. We sat in the front and the seating was very close so you find yourself in conversation with the... More
